LEGO set 10264 is a 2500-piece, model of a 1950’s-style building loaded with details, including a fuel pump and vehicle lift, an animal hospital on the second floor, a furnished apartment on the top floor, and a roof deck for minifigs to sun themselves on. Drops 1/2019.
What better gift to give a LEGO fan than an official and limited edition LEGO gift box? This collectible set was originally given away to customers who purchased sets at LEGO stores. It contains a living room with two minifigs, a fireplace, a chair, and a toy train.
The guys from the Hydraulic Press Channel decided to take authentic LEGO bricks and put them up against some cheap knockoffs to see how they hold up to the weight of their press. We won’t spoil the results, but suffice it to say you won’t be crushing them under your feet.
LEGO Ideas contributor Sleepy Cow created this 2,798 piece model of a grand piano which features 25 working keys, complete with strings, pedals, and dampers. It doesn’t actually play music, but it’s still a mechanical marvel. If you’d like to see it produced, vote here.
LEGO machine maker JK Brickworks follows up last year’s Halloween candy dispenser with an even better one. His latest machine spins round and round, and flings candy bars at the kids. Want one? Buy the LEGO 17101 BOOST Creative Toolbox, and follow the directions here.
Inspired by a design submitted by Grant Davis and Jason Allemann, this 859-piece LEGO kit lets builders create two different scenes inside the “pages” of a pop-up book, each based on a classic fairy tale – Little Red Riding Hood or Jack and the Beanstalk. Drops 11/1/18.
Yoshihito Isogawa shows off another impressive build. He used LEGO Technic and Mindstorms parts, along with mirrors and a laser pointer to create a mechanism that can project laser patterns on the wall by rapidly modulating its reflector. Here’s another variant he also made.
Brick fanatic Sariel shows off one of his most creative builds yet – a LEGO machine that uses a rotating loop of bubble wands and and a spinning fan blade to blow soap bubbles. Yes, there are off-the-shelf machines that do the same, but they’re not made from LEGO.
Based on a rare 2008 set, this 826-piece LEGO Creator Expert Vestas Wind Turbine lets you build a 39″ tall version of the energy capture devices you see popping up in the countryside. Its tiny trees are the first LEGO parts made from sustainable plant-based plastic. Drops 11/23/18.
This highly-articulated LEGO Technic robot by Shadow Elenter uses 19 motors to move its wheels, arms, snippers and grippers to defuse, pick up, and dispose of a phony explosive payload. We’re not sure we’d use it for a real bomb threat, but we’re still impressed.
We recently got a look at the amazing life-size LEGO Technic replica of the Bugatti Chiron. Now go behind the scenes with the design and build team to see how this incredible vehicle came to life. We just want to make everything out of those flexible blue panels now.
A real Bugatti Chiron will set you back $2.5 million, but this one cost just 1,000,000 bricks… and 2,304 LEGO Power Function motors… and 4,032 Technic gears. This 3,300 lb Chiron makes just 5.3 hp with a top speed of 12.4 mph and is every bit as awesome as the real deal.
LEGO Ideas member baeeee9 made this proposal for an official set of Voltes V, the super robot from the eponymous 1970’s anime. Just like in the cartoon, it consists of five vehicles that can be combined to form the humanoid robot. We love the proposal’s sleek look.
LEGO Technics expert builder Shadow Elenter adds another ride to his miniature theme park. His latest build is a dizzying thrill ride which would make even the most iron-stomached Minifig lose its LEGO lunch. Be sure to stick around for a little bonus at 3:13.
LEGO fan and maker Adam Woodworth has supersized yet another model. This time he took the basic LEGO helicopter from the International Jetport kit and made a gigantic version that actually can fly. He had to use foam instead of plastic bricks to pull off such magic.
